Poem: Honor

Abandoned, alone

Untrue, yet the thought remains

Eternally the stranger

Standing apart

Alien to the the outcast

A mockery of man

Enduring the violence of a savage

Some throwback to bygone ages

Infuriated with dishonor

Raging against malfeasance

Some distant element of myself

Stifled over long years

Reemerging after forced containment

Longing to lash out

To fight a good war

Revelling in the glory

Championing those standing beleaguered

Proud and defiant

Steadfast against the onslaught

Ready to spill my blood

Dying with a rictus grin

So others to remain true
